1st Paragraph, last sentence

The link to the libcabinet library (a non-Windows CAB singing tool) is a dead link. Information on the library can be found at http://www.freshports.org/archivers/libcabinet/ and can be downloaded from the mirror ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/. The last sentence of the paragraph HAS BEEN CHANGED to reflect these new reference links.
